Small footprint subwoofer
I installed a Kef Reference 8B for a client recently... I was worried it wasn't going to hit low or have enough power for a large room... I was wrong, not sure how they make two 8 inch woofers move that kind of air but holy smokes that thing is le... 
Discrete R2r With Tube Output
I was just at the hifi show and that LTA aero was in a couple rooms, sounded really good, very smooth and analog.. and it looks really cool  
Importance of streamer in audio chain
I used to have a Sonos Connect that was modified by Modwright I think, they redo the clock and put a nice coax jack, power supply I think... serving up my music library that is all WAV files ripped to a network hard drive.. It sounded great. I go... 
T.H.E. Show in Costa Mesa on Friday
Tonian Labs out of Burbank had one of the best rooms, especially considering it's $9500 speakers with a $4k Denon integrated amp .. as good or better than rooms 10x the price... By far the most transparent room in the show at any price...  The J.... 
Surge protector
Why don't you just take the amp boards out of the speakers and take them to be repaired? It's probably just a few screws and a couple connectors, and they probably weigh under 10 lbs, not that hard to do.   
*DAC
I have two wave generators, one in the front and one behind me. I'd just try one too start, I've had my cousin who is the least audiophile person notice the difference when I A/B on/off tested it on her. My buddy has the Acoustic Revive one that i... 
*DAC
I say get a couple Schuman wave generators, I buy the $50 nobsound ones on Amazon, they are in a wood case and look much nicer than the cheap plastic $10 ones, but they really add a smoother more analog sound quality without touching anything in y... 
Better hearing
I just bought these eardrops for ringing ears at Rite Aid... I had a situation where a home alarm went off while I was trying to put in the (wrong) code .. like 140db high pitched noise at point blank for 2 minutes .. my ears hurt and were ringing... 
Question about suitable fuse metals
I'd say wait for a sale and bite the bullet for some Synergistic Research fuses... I thought they would be a bunch of BS but holy smokes they are awesome... I started with one Orange in my amp just to see if it was worth it, not to long until I di... 
Upgrade from Bluesound Node
I'm running a Aurender N150 into a Schitt Yggdrasil and it's pretty awesome   
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
Velodyne DD15 is a badass sub, I had a 12 and a 10 and they are subterranean and clean... that DD15 was like $2500-$3000 back then which is like $5000 today... I say fix it, there ain't no sub out now at $500 or even $1500 that can compare, that s...

I use a Aurender with a 2TB SSD and have like 500 CS on it, I can listen to that if my Internet goes out. Or get starlink  
Speaker cable recommendations
I used to run Wireworld Equinox Shotgun Biwire, I also had Acoustic Zen Satori, then I went to Audience AU24... the best and least expensive and what I am running today are Anti-Cables... I've been through a couple iterations, and upgraded to the... 
I'm going to buy my first tube amp. I need honest blunt opinions
Look at Margules Audio, I've heard them twice at the hifi shows and they always sound so great, look really beautiful with wood panels and copper plates, really great looking and have such great bass.... And made in Mexico of all places, never eve...
